If you educate yourself to be more perceptive to the manifestations of decay of the Western civilization then you will find this kind of art-works quite funny and entertaining. Let's see some comedy and acidic exposés of our culture when the Titanic on which we travel is slowly sinking. Understand what you are looking at.

Look at this cabinet that is some 330 years old, made by Germans Abraham Roentgen [30 January 1711 – 1 March 1793] and David Roentgen [1743 -1807]. Amazing.

 

 

 

An automaton from 1784 that can play 8 melodies on an instrument, made by David Roentgen

 

 

 

If anybody is interested - a documentary on automata, mechanical marvels of the 18th century

 

 

 

 A mechanical computing machine of Charles Babbage [26 December 1791 – 18 October 1871]  - a first computer. It's prototype was conceived by Babbage in 1823. An utterly amazing work.

 

 

 

Going back further in history - The Antikythera computing mechanism that is 2100 years old, from almost a century before Christ. The precursors of this mechanism would be a couple or more centuries older 

 

 

 

 

A documentary on this computing mechanism.

Maybe I just find this kind of thing fascinating because of my linguistics background, but...damn. When he got to the part where he mapped his house and the interactions between his son and himself in three dimensions, I had to pause the video and catch my mental breath.

Here is an example of the audacious collecting of free headphones from an Apple electronics store - recorded on the surveillance camera. If this guy stopped at 3 or 4 headphones he would not have got caught, he just did not know when to stop. Amazingly he just kept walking out of the store with boxes in his hand.

"Late last week, ex-NBA player Rex Chapman was picked up by Scottsdale, Arizona police on felony charges of theft and trafficking in stolen property. According to the police, that's because Chapman made off from the local Apple Store with over $14,000 worth of gear over several visits occurring in the last few months. As you can see in the raw security video footage of some nine visits released by the police today, he would browse around, pick up an item (headphones, although from the video we can't tell if they're Beats), pretend to check it out with Apple's EasyPay App and put it in a white Apple sales bag. Finally, all he had to do was walk out before selling the goods at a pawnshop."

Another former athlete on the OJ retirement plan. Wonder if Lance is his financial advisor?

 

 

 

 

In my high school days there was a case of a kid walking out of a local store with a canoe. A cashier actually held the door for him.
